    I think you may have moved in the wrong direction by making Ban Reports private. Until the process for identifying hacks is automated, there will never be enough manpower to cut out hacking. You should probably rely on CubeCraft users rather than shut them out of the process. Your users can do a good job highlighting the worst offenses and make your jobs a lot easier. Making the process private just encourages reports from multiple users and more bumped posts.

    The reason reports were made private was because I was replying to them. :p

    The staff members are doing their best to keep up with the player reports. Keep in mind that there are over 100 reports every day. They will reply to every player report eventually.;)

    I have doubts that making the reports private has decreased the volume of reports. I would propose adding a poll to each report with three choices: 1) clearly hacking, 2) clearly not hacking, 3) unclear.

    Users would vote on the reports to provide CubeCraft with a quality score. The clearly hacking reports would become CubeCraft's workload. The unclear reports could be worked if time is available.

    If it were my process, I would focus on writing scripts to identify things like multiple reports on the same hacker and looking at those rather than looking at unclear reports.

    I realize that this could be subject to manipulation, but it's better than having CubeCraft resources sifting through a growing backlog.

    The opinions would be to diverse and to high a chance of a false ban also you missed the right section for this by 1

    As this is most likely a suggestion, next time please post these types of threads here: https://www.cubecraft.net/forums/suggestions/ Also, about this concern, they have made the ban section private due to people commenting on the ban-reports. This is implemented so only the members that created the thread and the staff member can communicate better. One example would be if they're missing evidence or something like that. The staff member would say to upload the missing evidence. Overall it's more convenience.

    Staff members are probably the most trusted members of the community (in terms of their ability to see hackers and what not) and the ones who do reports know what they're doing. Having the entire community's input would be so hectic and would make dealing with reports harder and would take far longer than it already does.

    I mean the main reason that they made ban reports private A: Prevent useless posts, B: Prevent fights between players because I mean if they see the report that they're getting reported, Most players would get mad. So it's fine. I mean the staff are mature, they can handle it. Also, if you wanna help, apply for helper :)

    They made it private so that people would stop replying on reports because they are staff only. I don't think it matters. The only thing I miss about the public system is that I could see when the staff were reporting. I could do this by seeing if they were locked and by who.

    I do agree that they should be made public again. Also, if the whole reason was to prevent people commenting why didn't you just disable comments? There are many cons to the change.

    Then it's unclear. If the person gets falsely banned, it's not on us; the community is just reporting shady people.

    People are replying on reports which is not allowed. I reported someone from a long time ago (When the ban reports were public) and he came to the report and started replying, which is not allowed. They might make a new way, where only staff can reply, but the reports are public.
